Ghost in the Shell

I saw Ghost in the Shell last night.
The Matrix can suck eggs.

A ghost-hacked human is a piti­ful thing.”

A copy is just an iden­ti­cal image. There is the pos­si­bil­i­ty that a sin­gle virus could destroy an entire set of sys­tems and copies do not give rise to vari­ety and orig­i­nal­i­ty. Life per­pet­u­ates itself through diver­si­ty and this includes the abil­i­ty to sac­ri­fice itself when nec­es­sary. Cells repeat the process of degen­er­a­tion and regen­er­a­tion until one day they die, oblit­er­at­ing an entire set of mem­o­ry and infor­ma­tion, only genes remain. Why con­tin­u­al­ly repeat this cycle? Sim­ply to sur­vive by avoid­ing the weak­ness­es of an unchang­ing sys­tem.”

Over­spe­cial­iza­tion leads to death.”
